To hold against all odds.
To love against all odds.
‘Let’s make love, not war,’
‘If only these were the wishes of the majority,’
said the wrinkled old lady.
‘Well,’ quipped the husband,
‘The earth will explode with love then,’
And he smiled.
Well this weekend, I hope we’ll all make love (erm… in whatever form, it doesn’t have to be the real thing … 😉 you know what I mean! 😉 ), and not war, I hope we’ll all smile and not frown, I sincerely wish we’ll all be happy and not sad, because according to C.S Lewis, ‘Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness is there in our lives!’ I guess, I shouldn’t say more.
Have a love filled weekend my dear friends!
Much love, always!
Have a magical weekend filled with peace and love

“If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?” (unknown) 🙂 😉 😉

“There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”
C. S. Lewis, The Four Loves (New York, 1960), page 169.
Hmmmmn, a great and interesting affirmation from C.S Lewis, thanks for sharing Ike, and do have a great week!
That is a photo of a lovely couple you have up there. Hope your weekend was great
Thanks Celestine, it was a busy one for me, we celebrated my daughter’s birthday, I hope yours was great too, do enjoy the rest of today!
